The Incredible Power of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

- The Incredible Power of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich           It has been Russian writers in particular, who for two centuries have struggled against censorship and oppression to accomplish two great tasks: to create innovative and meaningful art, and to use that art to make a statement about a specifically Russian predicament. So often the theme was political, and so many generations of Russians criticised Mother Russia for her backward ways. Vissarion Belinsky's caustic admonitions in his "Letter to Gogol" were long a rallying cry for writers: "This is why, especially among us, universal attention is every manifestation of any so-called liberal trend, no mat...   [tags: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Essays]
